My Dear Monsieur Schlegel
I send by this opportunity a copy of the Ramayan obtained as you wished in Guzerat –. I can only add – that never was a xx Public Slave more anxious to break his Chain & to wander free from the Cares of Government over the Scenes – lately visited by his family in  Germany & Switzerland When But he yet hopes to have that pleasure & to pay his respects to Professor Schlegel & to revive old times.
You will have received an account of Your Election as a Member of the Bombay Literary Society – which is  honored by the accession of one who is so zealous & able a labourer in the field of oriental Lore
I am yours Sincerely
 With the Ramayan
